Wonderful, charming, endearing. Must See
10 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at South by Southwest and was so charmed I cant wait to see it again. I have recommended it to anyone how has kids, plays golf or just loves a good real life story. The young stars of the movie carry it alone, but the story of their lives, hard work, friendships and families make it personal and easy to relate to. These are 7 year old children from all over the world, each with a different life story who come together in serious competition, with talent beyond imagining and aspirations to be the next Tiger Woods, Gary Player or Jack Nicholson....even the girls! You will laugh with them, cry for them and root for them all, but alas not everyone can win. So you will have to watch it yourself to see. You wont be sorry.
